Disposable Sanitary Pads

Panty Liner

Panty Liner

There are several different types of disposable sanitary pads:

  • Panty Liner – Designed to absorb daily vaginal discharge, light menstrual flow, “spotting”, slight urinary incontinence, or as a backup for tampon use.
  • Ultra-thin – A very compact (thin) sanitary pad, which may be as absorbent as a Regular or Maxi/Super pad but with less bulk.
  • Regular – A middle range absorbency sanitary pad.
  • Maxi / Super – A larger absorbency pad, useful for the start of the menstrual cycle when menstruation is often heaviest.
  • Night – A longer pad to allow for more protection while the wearer is lying down, with an absorbency suitable for overnight use.
  • Maternity – These are usually slightly longer than a maxi/Super pad and are designed to be worn to absorb lochia (bleeding that occurs after childbirth).

The shape, absorbency and lengths may vary depending on manufacturer, but usually range from the short slender panty liner to the larger and longer overnight. Long pads are offered for extra protection or for larger women whose woman’s undergarments might not be completely protected by regular length pads, and also for overnight use.

Other options are often offered in a manufacturer’s line of pads, such as wings or tabs that wrap around the sides of the woman’s underwear to add additional leak protection and help secure the pad in place. Deodorant is also added to some pads, which is designed to cover menstrual odor with a light fragrance. There are even panty liners specifically designed to be worn with a thong/G-string.
